SLEEP PARTY PEOPLE
"Sleep Party People"
Eargasmic.

Μαγικός δίσκος.


Οι πρώτες νότες του Sleep Party People γεμίζουν το χώρο με μαγικά χρώματα..
Το δωμάτιο χάνεται και το μυαλό ταξιδεύει σε ένα υπέροχο αλλόκοτο παραμυθένιο σύμπαν, απίστευτα γλυκό και ζεστό, άλλοτε χαρούμενο και άλλοτε μελαγχολικό.

"It's not your fault. 
It's my own fault. 
I'm not human at all; 
Ι have no heart."

BATTLES
"Gloss Drop"

Καλοκαιρινά χορευτικά κομμάτια με Βραζιλιάνικους ρυθμούς και γεύση από παραλίες, ηλιαχτίδες και παγωτά,
και σκοτεινά κομμάτια που χάνεσαι στο λαβύρινθο των ήχων τους, συνυπάρχουν σε αυτό το απίστευτο πειραματικό άλμπουμ που δεν έχει φύγει από την playlist μου από τη μέρα που το πρωτοάκουσα.

Enjoy!

Dreampop σαν ένα γλυκό όνειρο. My new happy place. Αυτό.

ATLAS SOUND
"Parallax"


O Brandford Cox των Deerhunter. Πειραματικό και ονειρικό, indie και ambient, χαρούμενο και μελαγχολικό ταυτόχρονα. Ντάξει με την υπογραφή του Cox δε θα μπορούσε και να είναι κάτι λιγότερο.

SISKIYOU
"Keep away the dead"


Indie folk με άρωμα από Καναδέζικο κρύο και χιονισμένα τοπία, ατμόσφαιρα και στίχοι με εμμονές σχετικά με το θάνατο (για κάποιο λόγο μου θυμίζει Funeral το όλο concept).

THE VACCINES
"What Did You Expect From the Vaccines?"

Οι Vaccines δεν χρειάζονται ιδιαίτερες συστάσεις.
Ένα συγκρότημα που απασχόλησε αρκετά τον μουσικό τύπο,  με πολύ θετικές κριτικές -κάποιοι τους αποκάλεσαν διάδοχους των Strokes ή των Arctic Monkeys - αλλά και με αρνητικές - ως ένα ακόμα hype που θα ξεχαστεί.

Έχω ακούσει άπειρες φορές το post break up sex στο αμάξι στη διαπασών (για να μην ακούγεται η αποτυχημένη απόπειρα μου να τραγουδήσω τους στίχους) και τα περισσότερα από τα κομμάτια τους μου έχουν κολλήσει στο μυαλό ανά καιρούς.. Και είμαι αρκετά σίγουρη ότι δεν είμαι η μόνη!

OK το What Did You Expect From the Vaccines δεν είναι το album που θα εισάγει ένα νέο ήχο στα μουσικά δεδομένα ή που παρουσιάζει κάτι που δεν έχουμε ξανακούσει, αλλά so what?

TENNIS
"Cape Dory"


Καλοκαιρινά catchy indie pop κομμάτια με επιρροές από τα 50s και με γλυκιά ανεβαστική διάθεση, βασισμένα στην 7μηνη περιήγηση με ιστιοφόρο των μελών τους, του ζεύγους Patrick Riley και Alaina Moore .

LITTLE COMETS
"In Search Of Elusive Little Comets"


Το In Search of Elusive Little Comets ξεκινάει πολύ δυνατά, με τα ανεβαστικά χορευτικά Adultery και One night in October και τα αρκετά καλά Isles και Johanna αλλά το κακό είναι ότι συνεχίζει με κομμάτια που τα λες απλά συμπαθητικά. Αν είχαν αναπαράγει τη φόρμουλα των πρώτων κομματιών και στο υπόλοιπο άλμπουμ σίγουρα θα είχαν κερδίσει καλύτερη θέση στη λίστα μου (και όχι μόνο!)
Παρόλα αυτά, είναι ένα άλμπουμ που είχα ακούσει αρκετά το καλοκαίρι και μου φτιάχνει τη διάθεση, οπότε #13 για τα Αγγλάκια.
